    I always thought this movie was pretty good, and I'd love to see it on DVD. IMDB says Paramount is the distributor. Did anyone like this movie and would like to see it on DVD? I remember Robert Patrick in it, and I remember the last 30 minutes or so with the flashback being pretty freaky.

    I'd certainly buy it on DVD. This and Sightings helped me lose a lot of sleep as a kid [​IMG]

    I'd love tbis on DVD. Saw it on one dark rainy afternoon with my best buddy. Freaked us both out. beacuse of this I now possess umpteen Unexplained books and files.

    This would be great with some interviews of the actual victims.

    Count me in too! I'd buy Fire in the Sky in a second if It was available on DVD.

    I remember liking it the first time I saw it. Plot spoiler below...
    The abduction/operation always reminded me of Neo's encounter with the machines int he Matrix.

    I'd like this as well, I remember it as being one of the most scary movies I saw as a kid.

    In addition I remember hearing the VHS in Norway (and probably elsewhere) was cut. It'd be interesting to see it uncut.

    I've been waiting for Fire in the Sky to come to DVD. Guess we'll all be waiting even longer.[​IMG]

    I know this was released on Laser Disc by Paramount. I believe it was released as both a Pan & Scan version and a Widescreen version.

    Paramount needs to release both FIRE IN THE SKY and another title that came out as a widescreen LD: THE KEEP!

    the needle in the eye


    YOW!!! It hurts just to think of it.

    Well, its been awhile so I figured I'd dig this thread up. Is their any news on this release? I know that it's kind of an obscure title, but still, with some of the movies that are now making their way to DVD is this too much to ask[​IMG] Thanks!!

    i interviewed DB Sweeney for my school paper back in 1992 when he was filming "Fire in the Sky"- at the time he was also promoting THE CUTTING EDGE and i didn't know anything about either film.

    Well, i went out and saw FIRE IN THE SKY when i came out and loved it. He puts in a really good performance. Wish I could have interviewed him on THAT role.

    Yes, I would like to see this one. I'm not sure why it wouldn't on the format yet. Great cast including Robert Patrick, D.B., Henry Thomas. Wasn't Peter Burg in this?

    Yes, Peter Berg is in this movie. I'm still waiting for this one. I just did a search for this Amazon, and still no date listed.

    Ditto! Ditto! Ditto!

    Hopefully, the only good thing about this title not having been released is that we'll eventually be getting a nice transfer.
